I don't know if this will help, but my app, is 99% complete in the demo
mode.  I time out the files it saves.   In other words, PGGP runs in demo
forever.  Try to open a file more than 30 days old and PGGP says, Time is Up
and quits.   (About 5 days before, it starts telling you that time is
running short.)  Set your clock back and you are greeted with, "Check Your
Clock Battery".  I am sure smart guys can hack a file, but frankly, I can't.

I don't know if this is as useful in your line...I am in grade books.  But,
perhaps the ideas will help you come up with something else.  Perhaps a
watermark that starts showing up after X days?

I didn't think this up.   I gleaned the smarts from a Mars Marsman article
in the old Inside Basic.   It has worked on PC and Mac for about 6 or 7
Best Wishes,
